"Many thanks to Bram, Chantel, Lindsey and Derek for a well-run, challenging (yet fair) and educational course. It's abundantly clear that they care deeply about the sport and even more deeply about training competent and knowledgeable Instructors. I've been through two of their courses and can't imagine going anywhere else!"

"I highly recommend Skydive Ratings school. I came all the way from South Africa to do TIE Tandem instructor Examiner presented by Bram and really guys he got the knowledge and experience in the sport. It's proven that a candle loses nothing when it lights other candles. I'll also recommend other instructor examiners candidates from Africa to attend such knowledgeable courses. Big up to SkyDiveRatings. TIE from South Africa Raymond"

"My expectations based on the coach course were that only the flight skills of the aspiring coaches would be evaluated, but once I have finished it, I have learned that it goes beyond that. Excellent staff with a very dynamic teaching program, a nice experience. Coach Rating Course the best."

"Peter, Bram and Matt all.did a great job. Not only did they help prepare me for the coach course, they were good enough to facilitate my first-jump course observation the next day. This is truly going above and beyond for the customer. At all times I felt like they were truly committed to improving us as jumpers and passionate about eventually making us safe, competent coaches. Thanks guys! Blue Skies!"

"This is not about gaining a rating, although that happens, but it's really about learning exacting standards, improving coaching/teaching skills, and raising performance levels. It's a smoke show; bring your A game"

"I want to say thanks again to you guys for the incredible experience I had up there at Skydive Ratings. You guys really know what you are doing and I felt like everything was done very efficiently. I couldn't possibly ask for a better group of Instructors, I felt both welcomed and challenged and I really learned a lot. I feel like I expected to walk away with a piece of paper but what I really walked away with was a foundation of knowledge that I can now move forward with. I feel more confident and prepared now to pursue more ratings in the future and with time and experience I feel that I will make a good instructor some day. So thank you all at Skydive Ratings for making such a positive impact on my life and career. I hope to see you all again soon for the next step in this epic journey we call skydiving! And I will be sure to recommend everyone I know to sign up for all of their future ratings with you guys at skydiveratings.com. Thanks! Sincerely, Nick Fuog"

"The Sigma Tandem training that I received at Skydive Ratings set me up for success at my home dropzone. I left the course feeling safe, prepared, and aware to face the real world at a fast paced dropzone. Thanks Bram for teaching me the valuable lesson and making sure I never forget my flare toggles again! I would recommend this course to anyone that is serious about their training and willing to put in the preparation for a successful course."
